SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

A Toolkit for Event Analysis and Logging

SESSION: State of the Practice - HPC Health/User Support

EVENT TYPE: State of the Practice

TIME: 3:30PM - 4:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Michael M. Resch

AUTHOR(S):James Carey, Philip Sanders


This report describes the Toolkit for Event Analysis and Logging that came out of IBM's effort to converge its support for low level HPC event analysis. The toolkit is designed as a pluggable processing pipeline that allows different components to use connectors to log events, have analyzers evaluate the events to get closer to the root cause, report and log these as alerts, and deliver the alerts to interested parties via filters and listeners. A number of plug-ins are provided with the toolkit, including a filter that removes duplicate alerts and a rule driven event analyzer, which has a new rules language that allows for a higher level location centric specification of event analysis. In order to work with the HPC community to enhance the toolkit and expand it to more platforms, it is available as open source on sourceforge.
